“The Epic Velier Caroni Tasting 2023: Sehr zugänglicher Caroni, das HTR-Profil klingt nur dezent an und wird von der schweren Süsse, eleganten Gewürzen und dezenten tropischen Früchten des LTR-Stils eingerahmt. Angenehm zu trinken.”

“Alcohol burns a bit for both nose and mouth and could have been integrated better. Otherwise, profile is really round with coconut, pastries, vanilla and Caroni notes which are very shy in the background. Good rum overall, that's a bit pitty that alcohol is not correctly integrated.”
